AMD's finest

SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card 100416NT+8GSR
SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card 100416NT+8GSR

Pros: Wonderful card. Destroys any game I've thrown at it so far. Perfect card for 1440p gaming. Card is QUIET. The triple fans really keep the noise down while keeping it cool.

Cons: Driver issues can be a problem for some. Not a fault of the card, but expect to keep an eye on those AMD drivers.

Overall Review: I came from an nvidia 10 series card. I didn't mess around and just did a clean reinstall of windows to clear it out for the new hardware. (I was due for a reinstall anyways.) If you don't want to reinstall your OS, just make sure you do a PROPER uninstallation of your nvidia drivers if you are switching sides.

Pros: Good value if it doesn't get damaged during shipment.

Cons: the shipment of this unit was sketchy. received it pretty banged up and the unit wouldn't power on. upon further inspection, I found out that the motherboard was severely damaged during shipment and needed replacement.

Overall Review: the company who refurbishes these was very helpful in sending a replacement mobo. threw the new one in and now everything works perfectly.

Pros: I've installed these on customer machines as well as my own, and have had zero issues. Strong connections. Drivers work great with current versions of windows.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Drivers must be installed to work. They can be downloaded at Rosewill's website if you don't have a CD drive to take the disc it comes with.
